Cherries: Dutch pair in contention
7:00am Friday 28th September 2012 in Sport
DUTCH duo Lorenzo Davids and Frank Demouge could be in line to make their first appearances for Cherries tomorrow.
Demouge signed for the Dorset club from FC Utrecht over the summer but has been sidelined with a knee injury.
The striker received a welcome boost last month when a specialist confirmed the knee would not require surgery and the 30-year-old could be in contention when Walsall visit Goldsands Stadium in League One tomorrow.
Davids, meanwhile, has also been laid up with a knee injury since putting the finishing touches to a two-year deal earlier this month.
Saints loan signing Lee Barnard could also return to action tomorrow.
Striker Barnard has missed Cherries’ past four matches after sustaining an ankle injury during the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie at Portsmouth on September 4.
Shaun MacDonald (calf) is out, while Richard Hughes (thigh) and Harry Arter (knee) are both doubtful for the visit of the Saddlers.
Simon Francis (knee) is likely to be out of action for around six weeks.
Cherries: (from) Jalal, Cook, Elphick, Addison, Daniels, Fogden, Partington, O’Kane, McDermott, Grabban, Tubbs, Zubar, Thomas, Meades, McQuoid, Wakefield, Fletcher, Barnard, Demouge, Davids, Buchel, James.
Saddlers: (from) Darlow, Butler, Holden, Purkiss, A Taylor, Featherstone, Cuvelier, Baxendale, Grigg, Paterson, Bowerman, Taundry, Downing, J Jones, Hemmings, Brandy, C Taylor, Grof.
